Ultrasound- Microscopic sound waves oscillate the muscle fibers to provide a form of massage that is deeper than can be reached by human hands. Unlike massage, no pressure is applied to the muscle and no discomfort is felt. Reduced muscle tension and improved circulation is the result.
Electric Muscle Stimulation [EMS]- Muscle cells are positive on the outside and negative on the inside. Our EMS unit depolarizes the cell’s membrane to make the muscle more permeable to oxygen and nutrients that speed healing. Toxins and irritants are drawn from the cell, thereby, reducing pain.
The deep joint stabilizers are the most important muscles in allowing injury free sport participation. These are subtle muscles that require focused training. A physical therapy evaluation is usually required to identify the exact muscle group needing a therapeutic exercise program.
